A crew from the Weather Channel was broadcasting from Bridge Square last night as it started to snow.
I took these photos shortly before 6 am. It seems like we got more than 6 inches of wet cement again (last week the total was 6.5). I may take more photos and turn it into another album but I still have more photos from last week that I’ve not sorted through. Jeesh.
Last year at about this time of April, I wrote in a blog post “I noticed yesterday that dozens of new trees had been planted along South Highway 3…” and included 4 photos like the one on the left above. This morning we woke up to 6 inches of wet cement. It’s been one of the coldest and snowiest Aprils on record. Good thing we’re tough.
While digging through my photo archives to create the new winter-oriented photo banners now at the top of Logro, I browsed through my photo album of the blizzard one year ago today, which I blogged about here.
Downtown Northfield is looking festive this morning with the 4+ inches of snow yesterday, just in time for the 13th Annual Winter Walk (PDF schedule) coming up on Thursday eve. I took these photos just before 6 am.
Update 12/13: I’ve added the phrase “Do you like the white lighting?” to the blog post title because of the comment thread.
Tax Day is April 18th this year instead of the 15th. But as if to compensate, Mother Nature inflicted a measure of cruelty on us Minnesotans today. A cold, wet windy day ended with a heavy wet snow. I took these photos in my front yard about 11:30 PM. On April 15, 1983, we had 13.6 inches so be grateful.
While taking photos at yesterday’s NHS groundbreaking, I managed to twist an arm and get permission to take a few photos of Division St. from the roof of the Scriver Building. The moderate snowfall at dusk, with holiday lights on Bridge Square and in store windows still visible, made downtown look prettier than ever.
